About the Artist


A great honour to meet David Attenborough at the Royal Geographic Society, thank you Whitley Fund for Nature

MICHELLE PEARSON COOPER studied art on a rarely awarded Art Scholarship at Millfield and in Florence under Signorina Simi who lists Annigoni as one of her pupils. Michelle has held 17 solo exhibitions in London, Palm Beach, Marrakech and Dubai, and collectors of her work include HRH The King of Bahrain, Bruce Oldfield, Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, Mahdi Al Tajir and Tom Stoppard.

Inspired by primeval landscapes and their wild creatures, on travels to India, Africa, Oman and the UAE. Michelle has given substance to her ideas born in the silence of the desert and the solitude of the wilderness. She chooses subjects that are powerful and challenging but always her affinity with them is paramount. Her honest approach and distinctive draftsmanship is apparent in each cast bronze and faithfully executed drawing, achieving greater perception into their individual characteristics.
